true if the specified channel listener stack can be build on the service; otherwise, false.

Type Parameters


The type of channel for which the listener is being tested.

Use this method if you want to check that the channel listener for channels of type TChannel can be build for the binding parameters specified before attempting to actually build the listener. Alternatively, try to build the channel listener by calling BuildChannelListener<TChannel>(array<Object^>^) and catch the exception generated if it cannot be built.
